Pardon me, for going all paranoid on your article Comparative study of field of view algorithms for 2D grid based worlds, but the reason of my acting was it's young age and the recent "media discovery" of a new pdf exploit. Being an obvious coincident or simply an unfortunate timing,
I still don't see the problem with wikifying the thing and why you would link to a pdf instead, there's plenty of image hosting services aviable on the net.. well I'll be damned, just noticed one can't show off-site images and image hosting here is disabled (also an obvious statement of how experienced I'm with the wikieditting, hah! :p), so err.. this part can be be ignored.. anyway... I understand the problem you're having, with the article, and perhaps why you would be using a pdf, however I still care too much about security/paranoia, so I'll let the notice remain and hope you won't be too much offended by it or by my speedy behavior.
- Edit: ok fine, it's getting alot more worse for me the more time I spend on this. I'm truly going nuts: I know I'd see images somewhere in this wiki, ie Digital field of view implementation. I'm gonna try wikifying the whole thing for you and hopefully restore a little bit of lost karma and sanity. Also, please accept my apoligize again.

- If it wasn't that data URLs are dead on IE (I haven't verified them on Safari/Chrome or Opera), I'd try those. -- Bessarion, 9:28 CST Feb 25 2009
- Also note that in theory (but not typically practical), all of the images can wikified by conversion to HTML tables. You'll want UNICODE for one of the corner-peeking pictures, and they'll bloat considerably compared to real images. -- Bessarion, 9:38 CST Feb 25 2009
- The hosting server has a (typically default-off) option to block remote image loading. It's fairly common for "free" hosting to explicitly block this, as a bandwidth control measure. -- Bessarion, 11:04 CST Feb 26 2009
